Many residents will have been caught up in delays in the Folkestone area when the A20 Roundhill Tunnel is closed – as it was for a time on Friday and Saturday.

Explaining why the closure and other traffic measures are necessary is included in a letter to the district’s residents and businesses published by the Kent and Medway Resilience Forum.

How emergency services cope when cross channel traffic delays affect local roads is also detailed.

The message warns of busy weekends ahead with the beginning of the school holidays on 19 July and the start of the Olympics the following weekend. As a result Operation Brock is being put in place overnight on Wednesday (10 July).
